I hate that sound. Its the sound of a ricer that thinks he's fast. Constantly venting his bov thinking hes badass. If your just driving normally its fine but if your one of those types that vent the bov just for the sound...boo on you.

"Vrrooomm..psshhh...Vrrrooommmmm...psssshh..psssshhh"..cries the ricer...

there's nothing wrong with loving the sound of your blow off valve, or even accellerating a bit just to hear the sound on decel.. its great when your next to a riced out car and your pulling up to a stop light and they look over because they're not sure what that strange noise was coming out from your car. i even had a guy in a honda ask me if i was running nitrous (he thought i was purging) on my 240. i just laughed at him and drove away.

Feck BOV, I'd reroute back into the exhaust. Sleeper FTW. All you hear is spooling.

At cruise or at low throttle there is no boost at all. I dont know how your driving but your not driving right. You should only be getting out of vaccum and seeing maybe 1-3psi of boost max. I think your gonna need to learn how to drive a turbo car correctly ...No punt intended.

I think your talking about a O2 housing. O2 housing(on the exhaust) are either vented or recirulated. The vented o2 is the ones where you hear the turbos spooling(only open at wot). The BOV(on the intake) is the one that makes the pssshhh sound.

You know from a launch there is really no lag on a turbo...If you know how to launch correctly you can have 1/3, 1/2...etc of your full spool depending upon the turbo you have so theres your power with no lag....

Turbo lag is overrated and so many people are under-educated about it.

Supercharge I havent seen a turbo charge for a acura Tl 04+ yet

It depends, you don't necessarily get the same results on every car and depends on what I would be using the car for.
